H&G High Conviction Fund

  • Investment Return Objective: To provide investors with an annual return which out-performs the Benchmark, being 5% p.a. The manager is targeting to provide long term performance of at least 15% p.a. (before fees) by investing predominantly in Australian Microcap listed on the ASX, whilst minimising the risk of a permanent loss of capital.
  • Strategy: The Fund seeks to invest its capital in companies with a significant discount in the share price relative to perceived inherent value. These companies have superior fundamental prospects, yet negative external events have attracted a flight of investors. The Fund seeks to assist investee companies to demonstrate, grow and realise their inherent value.
